    I read this on Yahoo in regard to the new spinoff series from "Friends":

    See that little title just dropped in at the bottom? So instantly I've thrown a fit. You know along the lines of "are they totally bollocking insane". Then I've check the IMDB and Digital Bits etc for any details of this sacrilage.

    And it exists!!!

    Assault On Precinct 13

    I'm speechless. Hollywood just doesn't have a clue. Oh and if Carpenter has sanctioned this, he's a whore.

    Let the ranting begin.

    Who knows, a remake may be an improvement !! Just like 'Get Carter' or 'The Italian Job' ............ wait a minute.

    But he's no stranger to the remake industry himself is he? Or the sequel.

    The cast seems to shape up well with some good character actors, rather than Hollywood 'stars' in place.

    I agree there are far too many remakes, but you never know. I had high hopes for the Italian Job but in the end... It wasn't dismal, just flat and lacking in imagination.

    Carpenter's 'The Thing' shows just what you can do in a remake. The new 'Dead' movie has been packing some good reviews as well.

    I'll wait for the reviews befre slagging it off. And lets face it, most of today's audience will never have seen the original. I hope it isn't just an excuse for loads of shoot outs and duff CGI, as per stuff like Bad Boys II.

    There will never be another 'Napolean Wilson' like in the original. Just too cool to copy.
